I do not see any clear criteria for an acceptance test for the milestone releases. I am afraid that the whole PDT massacre like \\\' I will not hold the release for this\\\' will repeat and mozilla will ship with well known crashers. In order to prevent these long living crash bugs I would propose to make the checkin policies more strict, requiring the assignees of repeatable crashers to fix them first before they submit any other peace of source code.

The lack of criteria will probably make it very difficult to assign the target milestone. How many html4 , css1 and css2 errors will we tolerate? Can you imagine to ship mozilla1.0 with a known crasher, as it has been done with NS6.0? How much memory we will give mozilla?

I think we should add some criteria extending the dates. Otherwise all decision\\\'s will be based on the wisdom of the drivers and theire private opinion instead of facts.
